Based on our experience with chemical products companies, this industry has unique needs that are not effectively addressed by all enterprise software vendors.  Units of measure, lot traceability, and shipping in multiple forms (e.g. liquid vs. gas) are just a few of the challenges that make the chemicals and process manufacturing industry unique.

Below are some of the factors we tend to focus on when evaluating ERP, MRP, and other enterprise software for our clients in the chemical products manufacturing industry.

Key Factors for Chemical Manufacturing and ERP Software

  • Laboratory management
  • Formulations and recipes
  • Scalable batches
  • Strong inventory management
  • Certificate of analysis (COA) generation
  • Bi-directional lot tracking
  • Expiration date tracking
  • Recall management
  • Audit trails and reporting

Not all enterprise software solutions are able to handle these complex requirements, so it is important to conduct an enterprise software evaluation that objectively compares potential vendors’ ability to meet these needs.  Companies that fail to select software that can handle some of these complexities often end up spending significant amounts of money on software customization, manual process workarounds, and sub-optimized business benefits.

Finding the enterprise software that best fits your unique needs is the first step toward an effective ERP initiative with a strong return on investment.
